"Dancing With the Stars" celebrated a new milestone on Monday when Rumer Willis received back-to-back perfect scores, surely cementing herself a spot in next week's semifinals.

According to Fox News, contestants celebrated "America’s Choice" and "Trios" night by letting fans choose the music and costumes for the first dance, and employing a third person for the second act.

Willis and pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy received a perfect score of 40 for their first routine. Fans thought Willis looked stunning in her red dress, and Bruno called her dance a "pitch perfect, refined high-class rumba."

Willis and Chmerkovskiy also received a perfect 40 when they added Artem Chigvintsev for a Pasodoble trio dance. That brought Willis' total score to a perfect 80.

"[It] was awesome. I really wanted us to have a comeback this week, not just with the scores but just how we felt after our dances," Bruce Willis' daughter said after the show.

The next closest contestants were musician Riker Lynch, who scored a 78, and Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin, who scored a 76.

Willis' triumphant night was a big turnaround compared to last week, when she suffered a bit of whiplash when her partner dipped her, and landed in the bottom two. Ultimately, Willow Shields went home instead, giving Willis a second chance she clearly took full advantage of.

"Most of the stress comes from my own insecurities and doubt in myself . . . [I felt] I was jeopardizing this beautiful girl’s season," Chmerkovskiy said after last week's performance.

"Dancing With the Stars" airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Two contestants will be eliminated Tuesday.
